When the moon arises on the western sky
and the vampires are out on the sly
at times they have trouble finding necks to bite
that's why I cook up in my roon tonight...
My riboflavin flavored, non-carbonated, polyunsaturated blood
(her riboflavin flavored, non-carbonated, polyunsaturated blood)
Drac came to me one night at 12
and said the blood bank had no blood on the shelf
I exclaimed 'don't fret!' i'll give you on fix
of my newly regenerated mix
I gave him riboflavin flavored, non-carbonated, polyunsaturated blood
(she gave him riboflavin flavored, non-carbonated, polyunsaturated
blood)

It gives you quick relief you see
from fang aches and corpusle deficiency
Natter! consuming my laboratory brew
will make a new vampire out of you
It's that quality unleaded, only one calorie, polyunsaturated blood
that riboflavin flavored, non-carbonated, polyunsaturated blood
Drac enjoyed my brew without a hitch
now he's one of those that would rather fight than switch
if you're biting mre necks enjoying it less
try my new non-carbonated best
My riboflavin flavored, non-carbonated, polyunsaturated blood
(her riboflavin flavored, non-carbonated, polyunsaturated blood)

    General CommentI have fond memories of this song from Darker Skratcher (1980). I found the darned thing in a bin somewhere, and life was never the same!

    I'm going to start learning how to play this thing. After all, Halloween is just 'round the corner!

    Oh. One more story. I met a guy, back in the '90s, who did sound work for events; had a bunch of equipment, knew how to use it. He told me he was doing a Halloween costume party, his first, and was try to put together his first halloween mix.

    I said, "Man! I've got THE tune for your mix!" We'd been planning to get together and coordinate stuff for a talent show at my workplace, so I brought Darker Skratcher along and planed to let him record "Riboflavin" and use it in his mix. He seemed pretty excited at this prospective little jump-start for his mix!

    Well, we put the record on and placed the needle for the track, and Riboflavin started playing. You should have seen the look on his face. For the life of me, I can't really imagine what it might have been he was looking for in a Halloween mix, but Riboflavin simply "did not compute" for him. It's so weird! I mean, it's the perfect cut, isn't it? It's delightfully "throwback" to the proto-monster pop schtick, with that characteristic period organ, the vocal is perfectly, on-target dreadful, the words are amazing and, of course, the production values are dank dungeon dandy.

    He was totally spooked. But...but...isn't that what you *want* to be on Halloween? Even for just one cut in your mix?

    It's surely to ponder.
